The digital divide has gotten bigger during the global pandemic, to the extent that to do normal everyday things you need reliable connectivity. As such, governments are now keen to accelerate broadband connectivity to rural and lower-income communities. Assess the regulatory, economic, financial and technology requirements for deploying new broadband networks at speed.

  • Which network technologies are being used and prioritized for extending connectivity?
  • How important are government interventions/subsidies?
  • Do regulators need to manage the competitive landscape to provide incentives for CSPs to extend connectivity?
  • Are there innovative approaches/business models that CSPs can use to reach lower-income segments?
